At Granbury Dental Center, we’ve been providing exceptional dental care for our community for over 30 years. With the addition of Dr. Cindy Knight, we are thrilled to be able to provide quality care for your whole family, even the smallest smiles. Teaching your little ones about oral health and bringing them in to see the dentist regularly as soon as their first tooth emerges is a great way to set them up for a lifetime of happy, healthy smiles. We have children and families of our own, so we know you just want them to grow up healthy so they can achieve whatever they set their minds to. Get them started on the right foot with gentle pediatric dental care at Granbury Dental Center.
We understand better than anyone that the dentist can be a scary place for many, especially the little ones! At Granbury Dental Center, we work hard to make sure your kids feel relaxed and comfortable in our care. Dr. Knight has girls of her own so she knows how to help them through the process and will hold their hand every step of the way.
Before even looking in their mouth, she will talk with them to make sure they feel comfortable in the chair. She will educate them on the importance of a healthy mouth in simple, kid-friendly terms they will understand. She will explain the cleaning and exam process, and show them some of the tools before getting started. They’ll be done before they know it, and they might even look forward to coming back next time! If for whatever reason, your little one has a hard time or needs extensive dental work, we do offer sedation to help them get through it comfortably.
At Granbury Dental Center, we place a strong emphasis on patient education, because knowledge is power! The more we know, the better equipped we are to keep ourselves healthy. While most adults are set in their ways, children are like sponges, learning new things every day and picking up bits of knowledge and habits they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
Our job is to educate your kids on the importance of oral health and to give them the tools they need to keep their mouth and body healthy. We will teach them all about the bad bugs that live in their mouth, and the importance of brushing, flossing, and a healthy diet and lifestyle. With proper education, we plant seeds that will help them grow into healthy, thriving individuals.
Along with education and oral hygiene instructions, we also teach kids the importance of regular dental cleanings and checkups. Only your Granbury dentist has the knowledge and the tools necessary to make sure they are as healthy as possible.
We’ve all had dental cleanings that have been less than pleasant. Our hygiene team has some of the most gentle and kind folks in Granbury to ensure we leave a positive impression, and don’t leave any plaque or tartar behind.
We perform regular exams to screen for any abnormalities or changes that could be signs of a problem. We look for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer, and other issues including alignment and bite problems.
Because kids lack the knowledge and dexterity to properly care for their teeth, fluoride is important in preventing tooth decay. We offer fun flavored fluoride treatments so they can enjoy their favorite flavor while we work to protect their teeth.
If your child struggles with tooth decay, like many kids do, sealants are a great way to add an extra layer of protection. We paint the sealant over the surface to effectively seal out the acid that causes decay for a healthier smile and fewer cavities.
If we do find a cavity…or two…never fear! We can easily fill cavities and prevent further decay with durable, natural looking tooth colored fillings that blend in seamlessly with their natural teeth. Our advanced technology makes the process quick and painless.
If your little one plays sports, we highly recommend a custom mouthguard to protect their greatest asset – their healthy smile. A custom mouthguard from your Granbury dentist offers the best fit and highest level of protection against oral injuries and tooth loss.
